Great Yorkshire Show 2012: Charolais cow scoops silverware

 

TS 1072012 GYS Charolais  Champ.JPGFollowing a quick venue change due to waterlogged and muddy show rings, the silverware in the overall beef interbreed championship was awarded to a Charolais cow with heifer calf at foot from George William Turner, Linghams, Skelton on Ure, Ripon.

Shown by his daughter Sarah Turner, November 2008 born Brampton Daylight is homebred by Billingham Sir Alex.  Today’s win follows on from taking the Charolais breed champion title at last year’s show.  


The Turners, who run 80 pedigree Charolais cattle and 800 Suffolk X ewes, have been showing at the Great Yorkshire Show since the 1970s and have previously taken the Overall Interbreed title in the past.  She was shown in-calf to the 28,000gns Brampton Gladiator.


TS 1072012 GYS Galloway Champ.JPGIn reserve, in what was described as a very close contest between the third place, was a Galloway heifer, due to calf in October, from Jim and Selina Ross, Romesbeoch, Dumfries.


Mr Ross, who was beef interbreed judge at last month’s Royal Norfolk Show, keeps 32 Galloway cows, 750 breeding ewes and 140 commercial cows at home.  


Homebred, the 26-month old Moira 1003 of Romesbeoch, is by Kirkmabreck Nimrod.  Today’s win follows on from taking first place at the Highland Show last month.  Mr Ross now plans to take her to the Dumfries Show and the National Galloway Show. 


Taking third place was a Belted Galloway cow with heifer calf at foot from Anne and Alastair Bell, Clifton Farm, Dumfriesshire.


The April 2009 born Clifton Daffodil is homebred by Barwise Jigsaw.  She was reserve breed champion at the Ayr and Royal Highland Shows this summer.

    Thanks – still more to come?

    Hi Yorkie, yes more results are still to come. I suspect the news that the show has been cancelled has slowed down the paper chain in them getting to us. As I say, as soon as I have them, they will be put up on the blog. GM

  6. Gemma Mackenzie April 8, 2013 at 12:45 am #

    Hi sln, the beef interbreed was judged using a ballot scoring system of all the individual breed judges. GM
